    I have received an offer to study biology however my household income is about 75 grand per year. I need student accommodation and I am really worried how I am going to get this, my parents are not willing to pay for this as I can understand they have more important stuff to pay for and I am 21 I feel bad taking their money, is there any options for me ? Will I be entitled to maintenance loan ? And will I get my tuition fees loaned?

    Tbh you are their child and they are expected to make up the shortfall.

    You get your fees paid 100% [assuming eligible].

    You get a min maintenance grant of about £3,500- £4,000. That may not even pay for accommodation.

    The uni may have some bursaries/ scholarships.

    That still leaves a big shortfall. The only realistic way to bridge that is delay going t uni an get a job for a year or two to save up the money you need. Go to uni later. If you go after 25 and you are assessed as independent then it will be just on your income. I would probably do that.
